Great industry to work for.. very dynamic hi tech products
Mergers and Acquisitions (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, CA – September 1, 2016
I was always engaged with the latest news and technology of the industry and learned quite a lot about the satellite and in flight entertainment industry. My manager was the leader of the in flight entertainment industry and he knew how to empower his employees. The company was the pioneer in the IFE industry therefore there were constant challenges and difficulties in dealing with new problems and finding solutions to solve them. The best part of my job was the interaction with various cultures and countries all over the world.

Panasonic is great company with great befits. A typical day for me is very busy but rewarding ,all my co-workers are knowledgeable and fun and the management goes out of its way to ensure the employees are happy.

Panasonic avionics was a fairly decent place to work at. They had excellent benefits, my co-workers are fun to be around, and it offers- advancement opportunities. The down side to the company I guess would be that a lot of the management tend to have favorites in my opinion. I learned a lot about code compliance because I was working under the FAA, and so a lot of our write ups and the work performed had to be accurate and precise. I feel that the write ups and the accuracy of the write ups was the hardest part of the job.
great enviroment to work in. Co-workers and management are the best.

This is the best job I ever had in my life. When your scheduled aircraft come in you board the plane and turn on the IFE system to make sure the system is up and working on all the seats. If there are any repairs to be made you address them in a timely fashion depending on the avialabilty of the aircraft. Afterwards you are to enter all information of work into the computer.
Product Transition Manager III (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, CA – February 29, 2016
Panasonic's Avionics division is a high energy entrepreneurial company that although has been very successful is a rather chaotic work environment. The right candidate must be able to work under pressure and in a high energy workplace. Having a diverse and the ability to lead is important at this company.
IT Technician II / Global Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Coppell, TX – February 12, 2016
I company is and ok company to work for nothing bad. really do not want to give a bad or good review because if you get the chance to work with them for the most part you will like it depending on which department you are in. Because the IT department was very fun and great place to be a part of.
Checking in at the work station and once again after arriving at the airport doing scheduled checks of incoming flights. I learned about the inflight entertainment and communication devices. Management was strict but fair. A the chance of working with a lot of well rounded coworkers. A would say the hardest part was providing coverage when there was a call in. Not being tied down to one area a variety of different planes to service.
Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Renton, WA – August 19, 2015
Typically 1st thing of the week, we plan out the work, then hit the ground running, to work the plan. We work our best to complete critical tasks by mid week then evaluate our results at the end of the week, We work with minimum of supervision. Our work schedules are like "whatever" and more like "24/7" - very hard to commit to family plan because job comes 1st. Due to our work nature, we can hardly proactively execute our tasks, mostly we react to urgency and crises. However, we get fair pay, opportunity to learn and grow, and work with a diversity of smart people at a very pleasant office.
Decentralized management style - individual works with minimum supervision
Inconsistency, uncertainty of work schedules and responsibilities.
Good Company benefits - still growing management culture
Repair Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Bothell, WA – July 14, 2015
Good Company, still small Company culture in large Company environment. Great people working hard with little recognition of their contribution to the bottom line. Dropping the pension program and moving away from Japan in structure and work ethics hurts overall customer satisfaction.
